Wonderful location. Located near the train station, it is an excellent place to start/end your Sri Lankan adventure. The place also allows one to easily reach the Old Dutch district on foot. Rooms were clean, a/c and hot shower worked. Although the train tracks behind could wake the light sleepers. Eshan and Karu were extremely friendly and enjoyed talked to them.

What a friendly stopover after a long flight, with an immaculately cleaned room and our first taste of lovely Sri Lankan people like Karu and Eshan.Courteous,helpful and hardworking! Always cheerful and smiling!Dont hesitate to stay here for 5* value on a budget .Room only basis (with kitchenette access including fridge.)Located a short tuktuk ride from railstation,and felt safe walking to the former Dutch Hospital restaurant area. A good start to our holiday.

Room Tip: Its a small set-up, but we had the room at the back(with the elephant mural)-no view but we slept well for our 2 nights in comfort.

This is a great little hotel! The location is perfect - right next door to the five-star hotels for a fraction of the price. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable, with air-con and a fan. We really liked having a proper shower area as opposed to a "wet room" style bathroom. High-speed wifi and use of kitchen facilities were a bonus but the real highlight was the owner, Eshan, who is a really friendly guy and helped us plan the rest of our time in Sr Lanka. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Hi Georgia & Mike

What can I say? Thank you so much for your kind words and amazing feedback on all the online sites. It was a real treat to have met you both and Karu and myself are both happy that you chose to stay with us for 3 nights.

As I said when you left, doing your laundry was my pleasure, I really liked you both :) It was also very nice to sit down and chat to you guys and get to know a little bit about you both. It is really awesome to know that you guys are taking almost one whole year to travel the world. That is an amazing opportunity. Like I said, you have also picked the right time of year to visit Sri Lanka.
I am very happy to know that you enjoyed all our facilities that we provide and found the rooms clean. This is one of our main focuses, cleanliness.

Thank you once again for everything, I know at some point we will cross paths again, be it in Sydney or Colombo. Have a Happy New Year.

Cheers

Eshan

Got the opportunity to meet some of the most awesome people in Colombo, here. Really friendly staff, especially Eshan and Karu, who extended all the possible help to us that they could as we had to go back home, the very next day after we landed in Colombo.
Stayed at the property only for a night. The ensuite rooms are small but absolutely cozy and very well maintained. The location of City Beds is also perfect; in the main Fort area of Colombo.
Would highly recommend this place for backpackers and other budget travellers.

Hi guys

Thank you so much for the kind words and amazing feedback. We a deeply sorry that you had to leave Sri Lanka the next day under those circumstances. Like I said, please do come back to stay with us on your next visit.

It was also lovely to have chatted with you all the way to the airport, not something I do all the time, join my guests to the airport :) We truly hope you will return to experience our beautiful country again soon.

All the best and have a fabulous and prosperous new year.

Cheers

Eshan

We stayed at City Beds for two nights originally but booked an extra night on our return through Colombo because we were so impressed with the value and service. For Colombo, there is nothing like it as far as location and price. You are a 2 minute walk from the Dutch Hospital complex and the friendly staff will help you with any site-seeing, shopping or other activities you might like to do. (They even helped us order food in when we came back from a full day of touring!).
